LVEDC is proud to present its 2022 Fall Signature Event at Easton’s State Theatre Center for the Arts on Tuesday, September 20th. The sixth annual event will feature a powerhouse panel of top executives who will share their insights on why the Lehigh Valley, among the nation’s top 50 manufacturing markets, continues to grow.

Confirmed panelists at the event include B. Braun Medical President and CEO Jean-Claude Dubacher, Victaulic President and CEO Rick Bucher, Stuffed Puffs founder and CEO Michael Tierney, and A.P. Deauville President and CEO Frederick Horowitz. LVEDC President and CEO Don Cunningham will moderate the discussion. Crayola President and CEO Rich Wuerthele will deliver the keynote remarks.

A separate panel discussion, moderated by State Theatre CEO and President Shelley Brown, will feature the change-makers behind the dramatic transformation of Easton. With restaurants flush with patrons and apartment buildings rising, Easton has reimagined itself as a trendy, entertainment, arts, and culinary destination and shining example of why the Lehigh Valley is Pennsylvania’s fastest growing destination for young adults. Panelists will include Mark Mulligan, CEO of VM Development Group, Bill Strickland, Editorial Director of Hearst Publishing, and Mike Pichetto, owner of Third & Ferry Fish Market.
